July 2020 interview - With Lola Blog   ~ with new protest photo stories, city series samplers, lockdown video dream and flashback music video.


“I make images about the energy in encounters.  Scenes, stages and situations of everyday extraordinary life. 

Life in the city and beyond, the change in spaces. Mirrored realities and reimagined worlds. 

And in a city of windows and screens, I stay outside looking in. In these zones I glimpse a version of reality, create or adapt dreamscape scenarios. I find fragments of this age, and prisms to the next.”
